Be A Lifesaver This Summer!

June 15, 2010

What are your summer plans? Are you heading to the Beach, a BBQ, a pool party? No matter what your plans are for the summer, before you hit the road, the American Red Cross is asking you to roll up your sleeve and make a summer time blood donation.

It is an unfortunate reality that blood donations decline in the summer due to vacations, holidays and the absence of high school and college blood drives.

From July 1st through September 12th, 2010 all presenting donors who donate blood at an American Red Cross Penn-Jersey Region blood drive will be entered into that week’s drawing to win a $250 SuperCertificate® redeemable for $250 worth of gift certificates from hundreds of stores, hotels, airlines, theaters, and more. You will also be entered to win a Grand Prize giveaway of a $2,500 SuperCertificate®.

The Red Cross wants donors to know that no matter what your plans are, “You Can Be A Lifesaver This Summer. Donate Blood.”
